OCTOBER 2019: Good news! My novel CATHEDRAL will be published by Europa Editions: the book should be out in summer 2020. Watch this space ...

Work will start soon on writing the script for FUZE - an action movie/thriller for director David Mackenzie and Sigma Films, development funded by Scottsh Screen.

Meanwhile, work continues on the screenplay of VATAN (FATHERLAND) - the real life story of Musa X; an action-packed biopic that takes in much of recent Turkish and German history. The screenplay development is being funded by the BKM (the German Culture Ministry) and is co-written with Atilla Oener.

And fine-tuning work continues on INSIDE, a screenplay commissioned by Heretic Films in Greece... a kind of thriller set in a billionaire's penthouse...

and.. KASHGAR: a historical play based on some real events that took place in this (now Chinese) city, in the late 1860s. The play has been sent out to possible theatres.

MARIONETTE, a film I co-wrote with director Elbert van Strien, has now been completed. Its premiere should come some time later this year or early 2020...
